Emirates is marking Veganuary on board by including an additional plant-based option on its menus throughout January.
While vegan meals can be pre-booked on all flights and classes, this is the first time Emirates is including a readily available vegan option on its menus. The plant-based meal is available as a fourth main course option in First and Business Class menus on flights from Dubai to USA, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Addis Ababa. Due to popular demand, Emirates is also offering a vegan option in Economy on flights to Addis Ababa this month.
Last year, Emirates served 345,000 special plant-based meals to customers on board.
Emirates’ vegan meals are created by its team of chefs and nutritionists and come complete with vegan desserts. A special vegan cheese was also introduced in Economy Class and the airline has a vegan option as part of its gourmet chocolate programme in premium classes.
